Laholm Stål AB is the small company with the big possibilities.We are a unique company within the nordic casting business with more than 50 years experience in producing and machining centrifugally cast stainless steel tubes. In our own foundry we cast the stainless steel grade specified and in our workshop we machine the material to customers requirements. Business concept Our business concept is to supply the process industry with both semifinished and finished products based on centrifugally cast tubes in stainless, acid- and heatresistant steel grades as well as to carry out machining on hire basis on stainless steel material provided by the customer.
System of operation
Our company combines long professional experience with a modern management system according to ISO 9000:2000 and also fulfils the demands of PED as a supplier.
Centrifugal casting utilizes gravitation and centrifugal forces. An ingot mould is filled with molten steel and by rotating around its own axel the steel is pressed against the moulds wall with 70-100 G during solidification resulting in a hollow, rotation symmetric tubular blank, dense and free from pores, slag and other impurities. With a furnace capacity of up to 850 kg per charge a high flexibility is reached. Production of exceptional components in special alloys does not cause any problems, it is rather our strength. Today we have a capacity of about 800 tons per year.
The company is certified as follow:
- ISO 9001:2008
- Steel Casting according to DNV Class Pt.2
- PED 97/23/EC.Annex 1. Chapter 4.3
- NORSOK M-650 for Superduplex
